Top 10 The Doors Songs
The Contenders: Page 2
Amazing song, amazing length, amazing voice.
"Waiting for the sun" is one of my favorite songs by the doors, and to see that it hasn't made it any higher is sort of disappointing. Nonetheless, the song isn't as popular as some, yet it should still have earned more nods than it has.
Arguably one of the first heavy metal songs ever made... For the album of the same name but not published until 1970. Killer riff.
This is my number 1 doors track. Perfect bass, beautiful guitar, great keys and killer vocals. It slowly builds up and the bridge is pure genius. It's a very haunting song and really expresses how far ahead of their time the doors were. I can't fault it.
This is the strangest life I have ever known.
This is not the first metal song but should be higherV 5 Comments
Not a typical doors track, but still warrants recognition. I love how the song changes mood, much like L.A Woman. It really is a trip. Jim seems to take on a Kurt Cobain style of writing in his later work. Hyacinth House was written at Robbys and the line, I think the bathroom is clear is simply about waiting to use the toilet, soft parade seems to be another random collections of observations, peppermint, miniskirts, chocolate candy, Champion sax and a girl name Sandy. Good to see it made the top 20.
When I was back there in seminary school, there was a person there who put forth the proposition, that you can petition the lord with prayer.
Jim was a great singer, but one heck of a poet. This song proves that theory for sure.
My favorite Doors song.V 4 Comments
This is such a beautifully constructed song about endings. Relationships, friendships and experiences. Ray is really at his best in this song.
Are you insane? Why isn't this song at least in the top ten. It's just beautiful. The flamenco guitar of robbie krieger, the extraordinary lyrics, jim's voice...
... Nothing beats this song. The only reason Spanish Caravan isn't higher on this list is because it hasn't been heard by as many people. The Doors at their best!
This needs to be higher. It's such a nice melody. one of the best melodies they've made.
Beautiful... One of the best melodies by them: flamenco. Puro, totalmente puro. "Caravana Española"... Un sueño escucharla en vivoV 1 Comment
Gloria from the live album Alive, She Cried. This is an amazing song one of the best by the doors, it has to be at least in the top 5 guys... - thatguyalex
It may have been a cover, it may have not the greatest lyrics ever written, it isn't even the most poetic sex song ever created, but it's wonderful how it is... What an energy, Morrison! If you want to learn how to scream, you need to listen to Gloria. What a vocal performance! The band is also great. Imagine it live. come on, Jimmy on fire!
One of the best covers of all time. Them's version was good, this was perfect
G-L-O-R-I-A. I don't care if it was never a studio song, I love it just the same. I say it needs to be at least the Top 15! Number 22? Really!?!V 2 Comments
Come on this song is cool the doors were a ballsy blues band to me and this is one of their best love their last two albums so cool
My favourite song of The Doors, even if is impossible to say which is the best song... All of them are masterpieces...V 2 Comments
There most underrated song in my opinion. One of my favorites coming from a die hard fan.
Robbie's guitar at the start of this song is simple but amazing.
Beloved piece. opens a great albumV 2 Comments
Phenomenal tune. Most underrated Doors song. Put it on your iPod and go crank out some mileage on the trail.
Good to see this one rated. It's not a typically noted doors song, but deserving of a top 30 spot. Would have been a great track to see live.
This song needs to move up the rankings... if you have not already, please give it a listen!V 3 Comments
This song should be at least in the top 10! It's so fozy and it has such a mysterious melody!
Perfect song (good sound and text)
Beautiful, great writing Robbie Krieger
Shaman's Blues is very catchy! I just love ray's organ. Should be at least in the top 10
This should be in the top 5. Ray and Robby play off each other perfectly and really compliment their style. The solo is perfectly timed and Jims words and vocals are nothing short of brilliant.
Should be in the top 10
A very beutiful song that only jim could have wrote
For some reason I find this song cute, is that weird?
Love this song. It's very different from they're other hits
I think this one should be much higher. Well written, great guitar, awesome vocals. It would be one of the best flowing, well constructed and brilliantly delivered song of all time. Unborn, living, living, dead. I have that line tattooed on me.
One of the best anti war songs of all time
I can't believe this and "Who Scared You" are so low… those are both top 20 material. - PetSounds
I like this one, not a top 10 track, but shouldn't be disregarded.
Great tribute for Otis Redding. I think he wouldn't believe it if he saw this song. He couldn't get noV 1 Comment
Another underrated song. The 12 string is gorgeous and the vocals are great. Jim really shines in this track.
May be the best example of the male voice ever recorded
What a song, this song gives me a high each time I listen to this
Really morrison's great poetry and some of the best work I have seen from ray and robbie.
This song is great it was my first favorite Doors song and it still gives me chills.
Should be on the top 10
